Two Old Hippies, builders and designers of Breedlove and Bedell guitars, have acquired Weber Fine Acoustic Instruments. Company founder Bruce Weber served as lead luthier at the Flatiron Mandolin & Banjo Company before establishing his own workshop in Logan, Montana, in the late 1990s, where he built mandolins, mandolas, octave mandolins, mandocellos, archtop guitars, and resonator guitars. At Two Old Hippies, Weber will oversee instrument development and quality, while guiding build processes.
“My dream of creating a team to build extraordinary acoustic instruments is coming true,” said Tom Bedell. “I get to work side-by-side with Kim Breedlove, Bruce Weber, and a whole team of experienced and dedicated craftspeople that love building extraordinary custom instruments.”
Weber production will continue in Montana for the remainder of 2012, then transition to Oregon over the first quarter of 2013. Learn more at twooldhippies.com.
